on a deserted island for a very long time, you are allowed to bring a recording of only one Grateful Dead show. Which show would it be, and why?

(Sorry, but this gives me a reason to unarchive and listen to something new)

If I was going to be stranded on a desert island the last thing I worry about would be a fuckin' dead show.

Well, at first I thought "I'll never be able to pick just one" - then I said "well, It should be '73 and have Bertha, They Love Each Other and Wave that Flag"

That narrowed it down quite a bit and I settled on:

I think I'll have to give this one a listen later today!!

The GSET, Weather Report > Dark Star > Eyes is icing on the cake.

I can't decide! So I'll just use my fall-back position: 9/16/66 ...It's just so classic. The best Baby Blue ever and one of the Best IKYRs... then there's that Midnight Hour. :) I know I'll never get tired of this show, so why not?

Great call - in particular, this Port Chester concert's Greatest Story Ever Told is my personal favorite... it demands - and deserves - to be listened to at high volume!

Hey CCD & MissD! Absolutely spot on with the GSET! That one just smokes. Don't you just love the drums--tight! And, Bob really does this one justice (there is the faint little half yell, half squeak at the end of one verse, almost like he saw a mouse or something, but easily forgiven).

I agree completely that this is the BEST version of that song.

For 70s folks, does it even rank in the top ten? Since I don't go much further, just curious...

OK, that made me laugh hard! I know what you mean, that vocal part is the only slight blemish on an otherwise perfect performance.

Yeah, one of my fav Bob Moments...he must be backing away from the mic and it sounds sorta like he is falling over a monitor or something: "aiieeeya..." trailing off.

Boy, that ones is good. I have used it as the starting track on half a dozen "mixes" for friends and family and they have all commented on how good it is.

Cool; couldn't recall if it had been discussed...as a kid I had one with Jerry on wah-wah at the outset that was great, but think it had a Donna, so maybe not.

Hmmm--just noticed it's giving 68 a run for its money with my web interest, Miss D; oh well, at least it's not 82 or some such. I mean, do you think we would last if there was that big of issue between us? Crap--she'd probably start to see something to like in SDH, and that's the last thing I need to hear now that I have to worry about Charlie M.
